What is #MangaMonday Recommendations?
#MangaMonday Recommendations is an opportunity for fans of manga to share their favourite series on a biweekly basis as part of a community of readers. Below is a schedule and list of topics which you can use to recommend manga on your own social media channels.
Who can participate?
Participation is open to anyone who wants to talk about manga on their social media platform: YouTube, blogging, Instagram…wherever you spend time online.
When can I post topics?
Everyone will be posting recommendations for the same topics on the same dates. The dates are currently every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month. You only need to participate in the topics and dates that work for you.
Where do I get the topics?
Topics will be posted here (below) at least 1 month in advance to give you opportunity to put together your content. The list of topics is curated by Laura (Manga Hoarder) for use by everyone. If you would like to see a specific topic, please make recommendations below.
Note: Not all recommendations will be accepted, and some may be postponed until it fits in the schedule (for whatever reason).
Do I have to talk about manga?
No! These topics are generally created to help you discuss different topics in manga, but you are welcome to discuss any books, games, or movies that fit the topics. Talk about as many or as few titles in your post as you want (there is no limit).
Talk about anything you want, but please do not recommend manga that is only available through scanlations! Let’s protect the industry we love by choosing not to participate in (nor promote) illegal and damaging behaviours.
May 28: Magical Girl Manga
|If you could become anything, what would you be?
This week we’re recommending Magical Girl Manga. This is a manga where regular girls (and sometimes boys) use a few magic words (and possibly a wand) to transform into something extra-special to protect their friends, to find a lost item, or to save the whole Earth!
June 11: Historical Manga
|Blast from the past?
This week we’re recommending historical manga.
History is being made every day, and so is historical manga! Share titles that take place in a historical time period, feature historical people and events… or, even just “old manga” if you want to!
June 25: Foodie Manga (I’m postponing my YouTube, and hopefully blog, post until the next week due to being busy with the Manga Readathon)
|Do you feel hungry, yet?
This week we’re recommending food-themed manga.
Who knew that food was such a favourite theme for manga!? Share those titles that make your mouth water!
|I have too many competing priorities at the moment, so I’m going to put this project on a temporary hiatus until September. Until then, please feel free to recommend a few subjects we could discuss when I start this back up again! Thanks for your understanding/patience.|
Note: this project expires at the end of 2018. If we have enough interest and participation we may continue it into 2019.
